Welcome to Rochester Area Democratic Socialists!

We are activists committed to democracy as not simply one of our political values but our means of restructuring society.

Our vision is of a society in which we, the people, have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of our lives.

We call this vision democratic socialism — a vision of a more free, democratic and humane society. We advocate political democracy alongside social ownership of the means of production, with an emphasis on democratic management of enterprises within a socialist economic system.
